Extra Details: All splitboard racers (men, women, non-binary) will begin the race, in snowboard mode, at the bottom of the course. Racers will start by crossing the start line with snowboard in hand, immediately switching over to touring mode, then skinning to the top of the course. At the top of the course racers will changeover to snowboard mode then snowboard down 1 of the 2 courses to the finish line. Loosing your skins, poles, or leaving trash on the course results in disqualification. The overall time from start to finish will be recorded for each racer and then placed on the final results sheet. There will be two divisions in the DD17 Splitboard race. The "Fast" division will consist of the top 50% of the racers on the final results sheet. Fastest racer in the top 50% wins the Fast division. The "Flow" division will consist of the bottom 50% of racers on the final results sheet. The fastest racer in the bottom 50% wins the Flow division. For example: if there are 31 racers in the event. The racer with the fastest time through the course will win the "Fast" division, and the racer with the 16th fastest time (DFM*) will win the "Flow" division. Trophies will be awarded to the Top-3 in both Fast & Flow divisions. If you questions about the unique format, we will explain in more detail to all racers at the start line on race day.
